Loose bowel moment for 11mo bishon shitsu

Cooper has some loosish or loose bowels since Thursday night. He had to be taken for bowels late night and then had loose bowel again on friday. Also 2x on Saturday. The timiings on Saturday were consistent with his usual time for bowels. Sunday he had 4x bowels and one in the middle started to be more formed…but last one was back to being loosish.

Not much is different in his diet or routine. Since the bowel issues he has had his usual appetite and eaten well. We havent changed his diet. He has had mix of raw and cooked meat, veggie mix.

Last few nights he has been parched and needed water. But given heat has kicked in, not surprising as we also feel a little parched and need to get humidifiers going.

We put some Arsenic 30c in his water today incase there was some bacterial. Any thoughts?

Perfect, I was going to suggest a dose of Ars 30c!

If he's already had a sip of the Ars water then you may want to take it away until you see how he does. Maybe give it back for a lap if his stools don't start improving.

so his bowel movements have been good since yesterday evening and he passed 2 good solid bowel movements. His BEAM was in good shape all through. He is a resilient puppy for sure. Think issue is behind us but we will see how he does over next couple dats
